ASTM-D5819 › Standard Guide for Selecting Test Methods for Experimental Evaluation of Geosynthetic Durability
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This guide covers a designer/specifier through a systematic determination of those factors of the appropriate application environment that may affect the post-construction service life of a geosynthetic. Subsequently, test methods are recommended to facilitate an experimental evaluation of the durability of geosynthetics in a specified environment so that the durability can be considered in the design process.
Note—during the placement of fresh concrete in a geotextile flexible form, the geosynthetic functions temporarily as a filter to allow excess water to escape.
1.2 This guide is not intended to address durability issues associated with the manufacturing, handling, transportation, or installation environments.
